127th Wing Photos

127th Wing stands ready in lieu of snowstorm, shutdown

Tom Kott, an equipment engineer with the 127th Civil Engineering Squadron, Roads and Grounds shop here, diligently clears the snow on base today, operating a heavy-duty Oshkosh snowplow meant for clearing runways, in nearly white-out conditions. Efforts to clear base roads, parking lots, runways and airfield ramps, is necessary to allow our mission to continue unimpeded. Local weather reports estimate a total snowfall of approximately 12 inches this weekend, with the heaviest snowfall of the current storm falling between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. today. Despite the snow accumulation and temperatures in the 20's degree Fahrenheit, Selfridge Air National Guard Base never "closes," it remains open under any prescribed contingency.
